Congratulations to the Canadian libraries for bringing 200,000 books to the world with no restrictions. It has been an honor for the Internet Archive to work with all the librarians in Canada who have made this possible.

Starting with using an early edition Kirtas robot, moving to a massive array or Scribe scanners, and now also scanning microfiche, this has been an positive and evolving relationship.

Go Canada!

Does "no restrictions" mean that all of the public domain books from ALL Canadian libraries on the Internet Archive can be used for commercial purposes?

What I mean is, the Canadian libraries don't use clickwrap agreements to make their public domain material off-limits to the public do they? I would like to sell pictures out of some of the public domain books they have uploaded, but I'm afraid they are going to sue me. Especially the universities from Canada.
